Floor Area: 6,209m2 Russell Kennedy recognises that as part of its commitment to social justice it endeavours to reduce the impact it has on the environment and help protect it for future generations and as a result is committed to continually trying to reduce this impact and improve its sustainability credentials. The last few years have seen the implementation of a number of initiatives that have had a positive impact on the environment. These include, • the virtualization of servers; • the replacement of all halogen and incandescent globes with LED’s; • the installation of lighting control systems; • the conversion of T8 fluorescent tubes to T5; • the introduction of a follow me print solution; • and more recently the implementation of paper lite initiatives in a number of practice groups. Led by our Pro Bono Practice Group, we promote access to justice by identifying key areas of unmet legal need, and building and maintaining expertise in those areas. Over many years, RK’s Pro Bono Practice has developed expertise in legal issues affecting asylum seekers and refugees. We believe strategic litigation is essential to achieving our goals in this sector. In the last 5 years we have run three major test cases: SZQRB v Minister for Immigration and Citizenship [2012] FCA 1053, [2013] HCATrans 323, M64 v Minister for Immigration and Border Protection [2015] HCA 50 and BMF16 v Minister for Immigration and Border Protection [2016] FCA 1530. In 2018, we have also successfully run 4 medical transfer matters for refugees on Nauru and Manus Island, Papua New Guinea, with acute unmet medical needs. We have strong links to community organisations such as the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, the Refugee Council of Australia and the Unaccompanied Humanitarian Minors Consortium. RK is a key member of the LIV’s Legacy Caseload Working Group, Visa Cancellation Group and the Refugee Law Reform Committee.
